Is Alkaline Water Ionized Water?

All water found in nature is ionized water. This is because any substance dissolved in water ionizes it. To get de-ionized water, you must distill it or use a reverse osmosis system. De-ionized water is pure water, which has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline ionized water gets its alkalinity

What is Ionized Alkaline Water?

Alkaline ionized water is referred to in the scientific community as “electrolyzed reduced water” because its elector-negativity has been reduced. In other words, it has a negative electrostatic charge. Reduced water commonly has a pH above 7.0, making it alklaine. What gives the water its alkalinity is the alkaline minerals in it, primarily calcium
